Product Description

Written as a prequel to The Quiltmaker's Gift, this wonderfully illustrated book tells the tale of the quiltmaker before she was an old woman. There was once a time when she was young and very rich. She came from a town that had a large wall built around it, that nobody passed through because they were frightened of the dangerous things that lurked beyond. One day this girl decided that she wanted to see what was beyond the wall, and when she did, what she found wasn't frightening but sad. She discovers the poverty of the people living beyond, but also discovers their kindness and wants to help them. Uncertain what to do, she finally discovers that there is something she can make to help them . . .
